Important Information for Programs in eLumen: eLumen is making improvements to the Program Building Feature, and the Instruction Office Curriculum Team will need some time for back end maintenance. From July 7 - August 18, we ask that you refrain from using the Program piece of eLumen. Any updates or new programs created during that time may be incomplete until we finish our audits and ensure we are ready to roll. On August 18, the Wednesday of Institute Week, we will have a Curriculum Training session and unveil the improvements that have been made, and you may then resume your work in the new and improved environment.

Curriculum Development, Review and Approval
A college curriculum - its breadth and rigor of courses, requirements for degrees and certificates, and the pathways that attending students take to finish them - is what defines the educational quality of an institution. At this site faculty, staff, and administrators at Modesto Junior College can find resources to support the creation, ongoing review, and management of curriculum - courses, degrees, and certificates at MJC, in support of the MJC mission.
The Modesto Junior College Curriculum Committee reviews curriculum and academic policies to ensure compliance with Title 5 and California Education Code prior to recommendation to the District Governing Board for final approval. The committee also ensures that curriculum is sound, comprehensive, and responsive to the evolving needs of our students as well the academic, business, and local communities.
